Tanya Baxter, played by T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh, is the mother of Raven and Cory. She is a firm but fun and caring mother who, despite the antics of her children, is always there for them. She halted her studies to raise her family but decided once the children were older to continue studying law. (When Keymáh left the show after season three, the producers had Tanya to go to England to continue law school.) Her catch phrase is "Momma like!" She has a very competitive nature to her personality. It's learned that her mother, Vivian, is also psychic.
